PAPS-LA brainstorm at Rose Garden
on Tuesday, 27/11/2012 —

On November 18th four PAPS-LA members met to discuss the goals and future work strategies of the LA chapter as well as the 2013 PAPS forum in Boston.

We started by wandering around the park and having an outdoors lunch at the Exposition Park Garden Rose. In the afternoon, the two main rival universities of Los angeles -  UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) and USC (University of Southern California) got closer together.

One of the members (Hélder Filipe) took the 3 UCLA Neuroscience grad students for a guided tour through the USC campus that culminated in a visit to the new (and amazing!) Brain and Creativity Institute Building (http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/bci/), officially opened on November 6th this year.
